The New York Times > Technology > F.C.C. Clears Internet Access by Power Lines

This decision is a VERY BIG DEAL for broadband deployment in the U.S. The FCC has done the right thing by enabling 3 big industries to compete for broadband customers, telco, cable and electric utilities...to say nothing of the wireless possibilities in the wings for the 'last mile.'. The howls of AT&T, commissioner Copps and Mark Cooper, the 'voice (perpetually) crying in the wilderness,' have been dutifully reported, but the broadband cat is out of the bag and America and consumers will be better off for it.
